Item details

Redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) are one of the oldest plant families on Earth. Although they thrive in the temperate rain forests of the Pacific Northwest, they can adapt to higher elevations and warmer and dryer climates, as well as colder areas. The secret is lots of water and sunshine, especially at this baby stage.

The common name for these trees is California Redwood. They can live for 2,000 years or more in ideal conditions. This species includes the tallest trees on Earth, reaching 375 feet in height and 26 feet in diameter.

You are purchasing a package of three baby redwood trees, right out of the grow tray. These plugs are 10 to 12 inches high or more, measured from the bottom of the plug to the top of the plant.

Pot these in ordinary potting soil on arrival, in 3 inch pots. You can regulate the speed of growth by varying the light -- the lower the light, the slower the growth. But do keep them moist, as redwoods like lots of water. We think these can be grown outdoors successfully from zones 5 through 9 if proper care is given.

We recommend growing these as pot plants for up to a year, gradually increasing the size of the pot. Plant in the ground in the spring of 2019. Or you can grow these as container plants by pruning them back if they threaten to get too big. They make great bonsai.

These trees were tissue cultured from large redwoods that showed superior growth, shape, adaptation to varying climatic regions, limb structure, height and diameter.

A mature tree is said to produce nearly 260 pounds of oxygen a year. Redwood trees can grow very rapidly. Young trees develop a narrow conical silhouette -- the highest branches reaching upward, the lower ones drooping. This shape changes with age. Young redwoods use sunlight so efficiently (3-4 times more than pines) that they can grow even in deep shade. But with sunlight and moist soil, the babies offered here can grow up to two feet in a year.

We ship Priority Mail, anywhere in the U.S or its territories.

All three are growing strong. Hoping to keep these in pots to control growth until someday in the future when I have a big enough farm to let them flourish.
